    DEAR PFC BLANCHFIELD,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A RIFLEMAN. SEMPER FI. THE PHOTO WITH THE PUPPY IS TOUCHING. IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE.. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE. MANY OF US HAVE BEGUN OUR JOURNEY TO EASTER. AND YOU ARE ALL IN OUR PRAYERS.

    I believe that you have been my guardian angel, not only to me but my children and grandchildren. My one granddaughter, Kaylee, 9 years old , knows about you.
    I went back to Vietnam after I lost you in March 1966. This coming March 30th will be the 50th anniversary of your death. I love and miss you Ricky, and I hope to see you and give you that big hug that I never got to give you.
    I love you,

  • To A Real Good Guy

    Rich and I were classmates, played organized baseball and pickup basketball together, were fellow iconoclasts, and grew up in nearby neighborhoods. He was just a friendly, great guy from the moment we met. I have thought about him often. He was the first we lost in Viet Nam from our school.

    I am of another generation, and I know no hardships from your time. Thank you for keeping this country free.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
